Share this:

Whether a scientific expert on nutrition and metabolism or someone who doesn’t understand the differences between carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, everyone understands that what you eat influences your appearance, health and well-being. Andrew shares his personal and research perspective to educate, empower, and motivate Type-1 Diabetics like himself to take notice of how a nutritional approach to managing the disease can make a significant difference. Andrew Koutnik grew up in Tallahassee, FL and attended Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University. While at Florida State, Andrew was involved in 11 publications exploring how exercise, nutrition, supplementation, etc. impacted both the cardiovascular and autonomic systems. Andrew received a Presidential Fellowship award to join the Metabolic Therapeutic Lab at USF College of Medicine to study metabolic therapeutics in health, disease, and performance. Here Andrew was a part of multiple publications, presented at international conferences, initiated extra institutional collaborations, and orchestrated two research projects for NASA NEEMO 22. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    I'm cured completely from diabetes type 2 by the help of Dr Itepu on YouTube,. I never believe in herbal medicine before until the day he finally cured completely, may God keep you alive to save more people.

  8. Grant Shramek

    I really believe that some of the problem is that older people I'm talking above 60 and up, many times have type one or type 1.5 diabetes, but most of the medical people treat type one and type two exactly the same and really don't put much effort into figuring out which one There are many good test to determine this yet they are seldom done in older people. I think one good way to figure out if your type one or type two, is to just go 24 hours or maybe a little less without eating anything. Stay well hydrated with just water but if your blood sugar remains high you need further testing to find out if you really are a type one or type 1.5 diabetic.

    I am vegan an Type one I have also 5.9 Hba1C since 10 Years now.But only with sport and a healthy way to eat which is much more affordable in Germany than in the US…

  10. Brandon Garner

    I've been dealing with T1 diabetes now since I was 11. I just turned 49. I have no diabetes damage that I'm aware of. My A1Cs run in the 4.7 to 4.8 range. I work out five days a week. The secret to my success – Dr. Bernstein's book "Diabetes Solution." I read this book 16 years ago when I was starting to see evidence of diabetes damage. I was discouraged and depressed. My wife found the book, I read it and applied his recommendations. It has made a huge difference in my life. In short, Bernstein has been recommending a low-carb diet for decades now. It works and is sustainable. I recommend this book to any T1 or T2 diabetic I meet because the one thing the medical community has failed miserably is teaching the diabetic how to manage the diabetes. This book along with the diet have made my blood sugar levels very predictable and stable. Please give this book and diet a try. It is as good as Andrew Koutnik says in his presentation.
